Huawei Honor 2 announced

Huawei has just unveiled the Honor 2 – a quad-core packing Android smartphone with a 4.5-inch Retina display.

To make it a worthy successor to the Honor and to keep up with the competition, Huawei made sure that the Honor 2 sits comfortably in the “high-end” space. For starters, the Honor 2 has a 4.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 which calculates to 326 ppi, the same pixel density as the iPhone 5.


Running under the hood is an in-house K3V2 1.4GHz quad-core chip, 2GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage with microSD support. Other specs include an 8 megapixel camera that can record videos up to 1080p, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing and a 2230 mAh battery that promises 72 hours of standby. The Honor 2 will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box but is expected to be upgraded to Jellybean soon.

The Huawei Honor 2 will be available in the Chinese market in early November with a price tag of 1,888 yuan or approximately Php12,500. Not bad for a quad-core phone, eh?

    “Huawei has just unveiled the Honor 2 – a quad-core packing Android smartphone with a 4.5-inch Retina display.” Lol it’s hilarious how you use the term ‘Retina display’. It’s just Apple’s moniker for high resolution.

    • I used the term “Retina” to give an idea and quick comparison on how “high” the pixel density is. In this case, its 326ppi – the iPhone’s “Retina” space.

    “4.5-inch Retina display” – Please stop using this stupid salesman’s jargon to misled uninformed audience.

    Apple calls all of their displays(Iphone,Ipod touch,Ipad,MacBook) as retina display, and not all have the same ppi.

    You did not even tell the viewing distance part that ultimately determines the “retina” worthiness of the display.

    From your article, one might assume that any 326ppi display is a retina regardless of what type of device it is.


    Good phone, but I’m also interested on the Xiaomi Phone 2, been wondering on what a full MIUI experience is like.

      Haha. Buti di pa napapasama yung meeehh meeeh sa articles ni author.. Dapat maglagay din si apple ng mga notice sa mga devices nila ng parang ganto, for 20/20 vision people, “to maintain retina display quality, please strictly ensure to place your idevice x centimeters away from your eyes.”. Others(non 20/20 vision), “please consult our geniuses to compute the viewing distance depending on your vision” =P

      Bottomline, many displays can be called retina display if viewed at a certain distance.

    pag P12,500 yan sa conversion, mga 18k lalabas sa pinas sa sa laki ng patong ng mga sellers natin dito…

    by then same price nalang sila ng slightly used na GS3

      I don’t think so. Since this is a Chinese product, its supply will likely come from china or hk. I’ve bought items from these regions and they either charge less than american price, some of them even ship them to you for free – using regular postage of course. At most, the unit will cost around 14k max. You can buy directly from Chinese sellers and pay a bit to ship it using dhl or FedEx.

      Wait for the prices on online shops. They can sell this cheaper than in the malls. My best price guess would be 15k max…hopefully
